My 6 string just arrived and i was wondering what songs could i learn or suggest bands that use 5/6 string basses?

I have already gone for the obvious: Primus and Korn. Can you suggest any others?

There are some things in life that are universally "good":

Sex, pizza, the smell of fresh washing and slap bass.
i like to play a lot of les claypool

but i have found that with a six string its so much more fun to make up your own things just because everything that has been made for six string is either really hard or just not entertaining

If you're into Primus and Korn, check out Infectious Grooves. Trujillo uses a 5-stringer.

Dream Theater songs such as
As i Am
Endless Sacrifice
The Glass Prison -love this song - 13:47 min of good music

I believe most Metallica songs can be played on a 4-string, but on some songs (like One) Jason used a 5-string, but it was only really apparent in maybe one or two parts of the song. Nothing really noticeable unless you are looking for it, and all the tabs ignore the 5th string.

Only Ash Remains, Fermented Offal Discharge, Stabwouond, Intestinal Incubation - Necrophagist. Stefan Fimmers is the man when it comes to modern metal bassists.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.
